Work with LifeSpan to design a custom immunohistochemistry to address your specific biological question. Outsource the entire localization process without having to
worry about finding and characterizing target specific antibodies, sourcing and validating difficult-to-find tissues, and having the ability to interpret the resulting
immunostaining in relation to complex human pathologies.
TCR Screening Services
Test your therapeutic antibodies in immunohistochemistry against a broad panel of normal frozen human tissue types in order to determine potential unintended binding.
Our non-GLP TCR services are designed on the FDA recommendation outlined in their "Points to Consider in the Manufacture and Testing of Monoclonal Antibody Products for Human Use".
Description: Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) is a neurotransmitter that activates specific receptors located primarily in the gut and central nervous system. SB-242084 is an antagonist of the 5-HT2C receptor (pKi = 9.0), with at least 100-fold more selectivity over other 5-HT, dopamine, or adrenergic receptors. In vivo, it is brain penetrant and has significant anxiolytic activity, without sedative, proconvulsant, or hyperphagic properties. SB-242084 has been used extensively in animal research to evaluate, for example, 5-HT2C receptor agonists and neurotransmitter receptor interactions in mice.
SB-242084 (hydrochloride) is supplied as a crystalline solid. A stock solution may be made by dissolving the SB-242084 (hydrochloride) in the solvent of choice. SB-242084 (hydrochloride) is soluble in organic solvents such as ethanol, DMSO, and dimethyl formamide (DMF), which should be purged with an inert gas. The solubility of SB-242084 (hydrochloride) in ethanol is approximately 1 mg/ml and approximately 30 mg/ml in DMSO and DMF. Further dilutions of the stock solution into aqueous buffers or isotonic saline should be made prior to performing biological experiments. Ensure that the residual amount of organic solvent is insignificant, since organic solvents may have physiological effects at low concentrations. Organic solvent-free aqueous solutions of SB-242084 (hydrochloride) can be prepared by directly dissolving the crystalline compound in aqueous buffers. The solubility of SB-242084 (hydrochloride) in PBS, pH 7.2, is approximately 10 mg/ml. We do not recommend storing the aqueous solution for more than one day.
